Please be aware as the weather gets warmer the red mite will become more prolific and start to cause real problems. An easy way to check if they are about in your shed is to place some Vaseline at the end of perch bars, corners of the sheds or on the edge of the nest boxes. If there are any around they will be stuck in the Vaseline in the morning. If this is not treated they will kill your birds. Broody hens sitting on nests of eggs are especially at risk so please be aware. If you have any questions or require advice on what to treat them with please contact us.
